Walk for a Veteran with PTS

Saturday 28 July, 2018
6.00am - 4.00pm

2018 will be the 3rd annual Walk for a Veteran with PTS along the Adelaide coastline. We walk 42km as a symbol of the 42 ADF personnel killed in the operation in Afghanistan. We also walk for those service personnel who have taken their own lives as a result of suffering Post Traumatic Stress (PTS) developed during their ADF service. We also want to raise awareness for those currently within our Defence Force and Emergency Services (SAMFS, SAPOL, SAAS) who suffer from post-traumatic stress while continuing to serve our community.

We invite as many people as we can to join us to walk the 42km on Saturday 28 July to help raise money and awareness for veteran and emergency services PTS (post-traumatic stress) programs. Funds will be donated to the assistance dog program Operation K9, The Road Home Wellbeing Program, and Heroes on the Homefront who offer assistance to veterans and emergency services personnel, and their families.

Starting at 0600hrs at Seacliff our group will make our way along the coast to the Largs Bay RSL for lunch before returning to the finish line at the Henley and Grange RSL at approx 1600hrs for official speeches and presentations. We finish with dinner and live acoustic music for those with the energy to stay and for those who couldn’t make it on the walk.

This year we will again be supported by the 7th Battalion Royal Australian Regiment, former Rugby League star now International Mental Health Speaker Joe Williams, Re-enact SA, Barossa Light Horse Historical Association, and West Beach Bendigo Bank.
